for 70% of the audience town halls there will be another one in montana tomorrow. 30% are set aside to sympathetic officials in the region. that's how things will be conducted in montana. white house says they like a rigorous robust debate. whether they get in their own town halls probably not. lawmakers are. shepard: thank you. mixed news from the jobs market. the number of americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits went up unexpectedly last week. that's according to the department of labor which reports there were 4,000 more first time claims than the week before. but at the same time we learned the total number of americans continuing to receive jobless benefits fell by more than 140,000, to just more than 6.2 million. the so-called experts were way off in guessing how much money spent in stores last month. they were expecting retail sales to rise, almost 1%. they did not. they went down. july sales down 0.1% in june it would have been worse had it not been cash for clunkers program. auto sales were up big last month. take those out of the pictures and retail sales wou

returns to the town hall stage tomorrow in montana. now, ali velshi has been on the road all week long holding his own version of the town hall meeting listening to what people are saying about health care reform and he's not running for office. not trying to keep his seat. he's just in search of real people with real concerns. ali's found his way to sedalia, missouri, not too far from kansas city. ali, from your perspective in talking to folks on the road trip, how effective are these town halls? what do you think? >> reporter: well, everybody's heard of them or seen them. it has been the talk of the week. in fact, we've been talking to people about the economy all week generally, but somehow every conversation makes its way back to health care. and i think people have been influenced by them in some fashion because they've heard things being said. they've heard people talking about the government lying or the fact that it will be government control or they won't have choices about their doctors. or their health care. there's definitely been -- there have been things that have been pi
three town house on thursday in new hampshire, friday in mantegna -- montana, and then the next day in caller. obama is making his pitch today with the same argument -- and the pitch he is making is to those who have health insurance. early on the debate had to do with cost or those who are not insured. but now that pitch is made so that a% who are injured mainly through their employer -- he is trying to tell them how they will benefit. it has been an evolution of the last two weeks. host: the president layoutlays t some key points. it says that reform will being down skyrocketing costs and improve quality. he talks about the tone or tenor. he says that the vigorous debate taking place is a good thing. but let's make sure that we talk with one another and not over one another. he says let's disagree over issues that are real. of course he is tapping into the fact that these town hall meetings have been very explosive, a lot of intense things going on. will the president gained traction with this sort of dialogue? guest: you see people coming to town hall meetings with pitchforks. it

'll also speak this week at town halls in montana and grand junction, colorado. >>> update on a high-speed car chase we brought you just moments ago. lasted about an hour. started about 11:45 eastern time in the upper san fernando valley. a blue honda swerving in and out of lanes driving the wrong way on surface streets going very erratically. the car finally slowed down and as you'll see in a moment, it went into a driveway and that's where police with weapons drawn boxed him in. officers pulled in and pulled the driver out. the suspect was arrested and here is the take down. he had his hands up, but he would not comply with orders to get out, apparently. so, first one officer and then the second move in and pull him out. this chase apparently started after the driver failed to yield. >>> the kennedy family is in mourning and for the death of eunice kennedy shriver, the sister of john f. kennedy died this morning. she founded the special olympics. her daughter was by her side at a massachusetts hospital. she was 88 years old. shriver's son-in-law, california governor arnold schwarze
, texas, oklahoma, montana and west virginia. all of whom have natural resources and energy income. and i think by the way, texas is the most understudied success story in the country. if you really want to look at stunning economic capability, texas is remarkable. as i said earlier, we had sustained very low growth, and we did it selectively, because we actually doubled the budget of the national institute of health, while controlling spending. now, policies do matter, and texas is a good place to study that. texas was responsible for 70% of net new jobs in 2008. in the entire country, 70% of the net new jobs were in the state of texas. their unemployment rate is about 2 percentage points below the national average. one reason is, their legislature only meets every other year. this is very important. of the rise of professional legislators has led to the rise of powerful interest groups who basically sustain those legislators and the result is you get much too much government, much too much bus -- bureaucracy, and much too much special interest. when you elect people from the general pop
